NaNoWriMo: Writing a Novel in 30 Days.

By | November 2, 2010

It’s back, National Novel Writing Month. The month where you start a novel on November 1st, and finish it by November 30th with at least a grand total of 50,000 words!

And yes, I am attempting this again. I did it last year, with no prior planning and no intermediate planning, and finished with a few days to spare. The novel was not America’s next great book of fiction, but that was not the point; the point was to get myself to start writing, and to finish. And I made my point.

Pretty exciting, huh?

I was hoping to have a rough plot outline before starting, but I find it’s November 1st today, and I never got around to figuring out my story. So once again, I jump in blindly, hoping that somewhere along the way, I sprout wings and fly instead of landing flat on my face in a mushy pile of words that no one wants to read.

My goal is to write at least 2,000 words per day. So far today, I have 985. So I better get back to it.
